Radical Films: 15 Movies That Shook the World

SIFF’s Radical Films series returns this January with another five-week globe-trotting journey across time. We will watch a lost horror film masterpiece from Japan and an early animated film that changed everything. We will explore Mexico City through a realist drama that inspired Guillermo Del Toro. We will look at Bruce Lee’s final film, an epic Bollywood Western, and an important Maori melodrama from the ‘90s. Lastly, we will turn to films from the last twenty years from Brazil, to Scotland, to Senegal.
